Knox Box

Knox Rapid Access System

The Carbondale Fire Department will be adopting the Rapid Access System from Knox Company. The Rapid Access System allows first responders quick access into secured facilities and commercial properties without forced entry damage. The Knox Box is a locked box that holds the keys to the gate and/or rooms of a facility, or the facility itself needing emergency access, only to be unlocked by a pin number or master key in the possession of the first responders.

Ordering a Knox Device

To get a Knox Box please first call or email the Fire Department to get a consultation on where the best place to put the box would be on your property. Then the property owner will decide whether to get a residential or commercial Knox Box depending on their needs. They can be ordered by going to the Knox Box Company Official Website. Make sure while on their website to select Carbondale Fire Department to view the products. Once the Knox Box has arrived, contact the Fire Department again to help with the installation of the box on the property and to give them the master key that unlocks the box.
